Preserving James Baldwin's Legacy in the Digital Now: Final Project Symposium with AAS 498-in action course students

Tuesday, December 7, 2021
2:30-4:00 PM
The first iteration of DAAS 498-"in action" seminar, “Reconstructing James Baldwin’s Legacy in the Digital Now,” presents a final project symposium! On Tuesday, December 7th from 2:30pm-4pm students will feature original work with a commentary by Baldwin scholar, Associate Professor and Director of Africana Studies, Ernest Gibson III of Auburn University.

This event brings the creativity and complexity of Baldwin's thought into the 21-st century. The course and presentations are based on the new University of Michigan Library digital collection that documents the famous Black queer writer's beloved house in St. Paul-de-Vence, France, "Chez Baldwin." The "Chez Baldwin" digital collection is the brainchild of Professor Magdalena J. Zaborowska of the Department of Afro-American Studies and American Culture and was created in collaboration with University of Michigan students, colleagues, and staff.
